May 7--axbow/enbow are still useless (in General)

Seems that these 2 rares are basically out of gameplay and strategy.

It's a shame since they were a very good option for tank characters.

One would think that if something would be done, it would have happened already.

Or maybe... umm... How the heck do I know. I just wanted to first to reply. Maybe he wanted the price to go down. Or maybe... he thought they were overpowered? Maybe he just hates us :)

61mil NW bow over powered by a handful of experience. Sad, very sad.

I guess I'm too stubborn to use an elb, I'll be sticking with my paperweight.

As Ape said, 20k levels in a skill makes a 63M NW weapon useless.

It is almost as if someone were trying to make the 3 most valuable speciality crossbows worthless, but I am not paranoid or anything. Or am I?

I think I missed something. What did Jon do to Axbows? This is a serious question, I was gone for the better part of the last year.

Have you not heard of PL the new strongest skill in the game and how it effects these items negatively which were nerfed before they ever made it to cb2....

QBBarzooMonkey May 7 2006 8:48 PM EDT

Here's a question - What if they don't get fixed? What if they get replaced by new items that do the job they did, and we all have to scramble to:
A) acquire them, and
B) build them up again.

Isn't that what change month is about in the first place?

From that point of view, would it really be so tragic if if someone were trying to make the 3 most valuable specialty crossbows worthless? It's only May 7th, there's still 23 more days to go...

Apparently, that depends on whether or not you own one, Barzoo. ;-)

QBsutekh137 May 7 2006 9:41 PM EDT

I don't own any such thing, and I still find the fact that a single skill was given two patently disparate abilities (one of which negates an entire clas of weaponry). Than again, my thickness is quite legendary.

They're not completely useless. There are still teams not using PL. You can always use them against me...of course you have to hit me first..... ;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 8 2006 9:52 AM EDT

Well, they'd have no problems hitting single Mages! ;)

But then, who needs to drain thier Str or Dex? :/
